Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? We are roasting in Arizona!!! it’s brutally HOT! HOT! HOT! We are in the pool!

Today, I am sharing fabulous ideas for a summer party, pool party or just a get together with friends and the kiddos! These are the ideas I put together for Arizona Midday a couple of weeks ago that cost less than $100!

Party Decorations

I found all the party decorations at Party City. You can use the summer cut outs to make the centerpiece and more!

fun in the sun

For this centerpiece, I used a fun summer yard stick and put it in a recycled can wrapped with scrapbook paper. I found the flip flop lollipops at Sweeties.

These adorable sun umbrellas from Party City were perfect for the table as well. I put them in a glass jar with jelly beans from Jelly Belly.

I suggest fresh fruit in little cups and dress them up with the fruity party picks from Party City. Get a box with 50 for only $3.99!

Summer party 2

Pour blue punch in clear plastic cups with color changing straws! Notice the white trays make everything more presentable. You can get those from Party City for only $1.99! I use mine all the time.

I love this acrylic pitcher from Party City! I simply taped a cut out from the summer pack I got.

I put 3 blue plastic bowls with jelly beans, sixlets and pineapple gummies. The cute candy scoops and bowls can be purchased at Party City.

Set up a tray with fun summer photo props for your photo booth!

For party favors, I found beach buckets and beach balls for $1 at Michael’s. I found the “Summer Fun” free printable from Dimple Prints.
